I previously defined a hipster as someone who is nostalgic for a past that they never experienced. It’s not a particularly unique idea, I know---the movie Midnight in Paris plumbs this notion of nostalgia pretty effectively---but whatever. I’ve found it amusing watching people embrace physical media, whether it’s books, movies, or music, during the shift to digital and streaming technologies in the early 21st century.
And I was never going to be that guy. Until I was. Well, sort of.
